Posted on 03/09/2012 9:49:18 AM PST by Mountain Mary
Many Republican political professionals are worried that Mitt Romneys public image is now defined by a word never associated with winning presidential campaigns weakness and are urging him to take dramatic steps to recast his reputation between now and the fall. The advice, echoed in interviews with numerous influential GOP figures, comes as Romney finds himself tormented by a contradiction: With each passing day of the primary season, he is coming closer and closer to being presidential nominee and seemingly further and further away from being president.

the article fails to highlight that Bob Dole at his weakest, would beat Obama.
No Bob Dole ACTUALLY did serve his country in uniform(and sustained Life threatening Service related injuries) while the ENTIRE WUSSY Rommney Family fan off to either Mexico or France to avoid service and to skirt US laws. What was the last Ronnmey to wear a US Military Uniform?
Why is there even a question mark in the title? It’s Romney’s turn.
Bush, Dole, McCain, Romney—SSDD. The RNC just hopes you won’t notice.
Won’t vote for Romney ever. I’d rather fight the devil that has his mask off than approve of the costumed one that will sink conservatism.
Big problem is if Repubs do not turn out to vote for Romney. IMO, this is what some folks did when McCain was running in 2008. There by contributing to the Obama win.
“Bob Dole is the new Bob Dole”, said Bob Dole.
I often defend Romney, as I defend all the republican candidates. All are fine with me.
Yes he definitely has to fear appearing like Dole. BTW Dole wasn’t weak he had a reputation for a mean streak. We would have been so better under Dole than Clinton.
Dole was just labeled as a loser, definitely as too old. Don’t fall into any of these traps, folks. Our nominee will be savaged no matter who it is.
I live in the Philadelphia area. While you all enjoy the image of Santorum as an “everyman” I can tell you the Pennsylvania media had him targeted as an extreme out of touch right wing homophobic nazi.
If anything, Santorum is a guy I’d feel most comfortable with in the White House, and he is the guy the media most loves to hate. But they will do Gingrich or Romney the same favor.
I couldn’t wait to hear Rush today deal with the media spin that more jobless means a “robust recovery”. Stay vigilant.
McCain had a better chance of winning than Romney does.
After all, Romney lost to McCain.
>Is Mitt Romney the new Bob Dole?<
Is the new GOP the old ‘let’s all get along’ GOP?
As a person? No. Mittens isn't half of a Bob Dole.
As a repeat of history? Absolutely, to a T.
1994/2010 a great populist uprising takes place and ties the hands of an Anti-American liberal POS.
1996/2012 the populist uprising dissipates, fails to finish the job, and grants four more years to the clown president to hurt the country.
Dole, McCain....you name it...he fits the loser MO.
Santorum says he would definitely consider Gingrich for VP and I personally think it would be an ideal match.
Gingrich has the powerful personality that will have an impact in a Santorum administration. Also they’re the perfect matchup for a good cop/bad cop team. Santorum could explain policy with a smile while Gingrich could use his experience to apply the whip in congress.
Yeah, fighting the devil would be better. He’s Obama’s twin. Obama is better. Every single word he ever speaks is a lie, so when he takes conservative positions he’s actually an ultra liberal. He will defend Obamacare even with a GOP Congress and even after campaigning to immediately repeal it.
I am strongly on the defeat Obama side. There is no wavering. I would say I favor Santorum/Romney followed by Gingrich at the moment. If they win the nomination they deserve my vote and Obama must go.
I’ve watched towns, counties and states go underwater to liberal democrat control and not recover for decades because some conservatives gritted their teeth and were going to teach the GOP a lesson.
Me either gvko.
I’ll write in the name: “Orange Juice Can” instead.
